Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. A similar meme, Can’t-Wait Wednesday, is hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings. If you’d like to participate in either one, don’t forget to link back to these lovely ladies and add your links in their posts.
My pick for this week’s “can’t wait to read” is
Expected publication: April 24th 2018 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Genre(s): Young Adult, Fantasy
Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed “Ash Princess.” Pretending to be empty-headed and naive when she’s not enduring brutal whippings, she pushes down all other thoughts but one: Keep the Kaiser happy and he will keep you safe.
When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can’t keep her feelings and memories pushed down any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser’s warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn’t expect to develop feelings for the Prinz. Or for her rebel allies to challenge her friendship with the one person who’s been kind to her throughout the last hopeless decade: her heart’s sister, Cress.
Cornered into impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she’s willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she’s willing to sacrifice to become queen.
This book sounds really awesome and thrilling! Revenge, seduction, and an unexpected romance with the enemy… YUP SIGN ME UP! Oh and it comes out on my birthday month so I’m definitely be getting this one.

I somehow got approved for this on NetGalley and I’m SO excited.
This cover is SO gorgeous–I’m pretty much attracted to anything with crowns. YES TO REBELS AND HIGH FANTASY!! Awesome pick, Karen Jo! ^_^
